I found this vase last weekend and because it was rather unusually shaped, I invited it home. Well, I have bought stranger things, but this one is not far off.
The vase appears to be handmade. It has a ruffled top and a crudely polished pontil. It is about 20 inches tall and has a very strange shape. I am not sure how to describe the shape but "twisted" is not the right word. "Tortuous" might be a better term.
The blue glass is rather beautiful. It looks great in the light. I think it might be cobalt glass. The decoration consists of small golden leaves and white flowers. There is some profile to the flowers and it could be enamel, but it also could be thickly applied paint.
I have seen similar shapes of vases made in Poland (Krosnos) and some saying they were made in Scandinavia, but their finish was more modern.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for looking:)
